With David Wimpfheimer
Fall and winter are actually the seasons of greatest abundance for many birds at Point Reyes. Coastal estuaries such as Limantour Estero are extremely rich feeding areas for thousands of ducks, shorebirds, grebes and other water birds. Over ten species of hawks, falcons and other raptors occur in large numbers due to these rich feeding conditions. Warblers, thrushes, kinglets, flycatchers and other land birds are also found here in huge numbers. The annual Christmas Bird Count often records more individuals of many species than any other location in the country. This class will cover the basics of field identification in a fun, relaxed atmosphere. While observing birds in a variety of habitats, this program will offer insights into the use of binoculars, scopes and field guides. David will share techniques that will enhance your birding skills. Come discover why birding is one of the most popular pastimes in the country and why Point Reyes is one of the best locations to enjoy it.
